Learn more about Romanesco cabbage

Also known as “apple broccoli”, this ancient variety of cabbage is native to Italy (Rome). In France, it has only been cultivated en masse for about twenty years, especially in Brittany.

Its apple, compact and pointed, is bristling with multiple florettes of geometrical and pyramidal shapes, arranged in a spiral crown, giving an original and very aesthetic appearance.

Its mild and sweet flavour is a delicious match for meat and fish. This cabbage can also be prepared as a purée, risotto, pie, raw salad, cream salad, etc.
